    Chartered Accountants Australia New Zealand tax lead for New Zealand, John Cuthbertson, joins Jenee Tibshraeny on this episode of Continuous Disclosure to discuss what the bill would have changed, and other taxes and fees that need addressing.

    How green finance actually works - and why it's more than just corporate buzz

    How green finance actually works - and why it's more than just corporate buzz

    "Green finance" has become something of a corporate buzz phrase in recent years, as banks and governments increasingly link debt products to sustainability initiatives. 

    The New Zealand Government is even planning to issue "green bonds" later this year, that will see it promise investors debt raised will be used for green investments. And this week, Kiwibank announced it will launch a sustainable loan product for businesses on September 26. 

    On this episode of Continuous Disclosure, Kiwibank's head of sustainable finance Tom Williams joins Jenee Tibshraeny to discuss what their policy means, the ins and outs of green finance, and how to avoid making 'greenwashing' policies.

    After the crypto crash, what's next for digital currencies?

    After the crypto crash, what's next for digital currencies?

    Cryptocurrency markets have plunged this year as confidence in markets as a whole has plummeted with rising interest rates, high inflation and the threat of recession.

    In the US, three companies in the cyptocurrency space have gone bankrupt in the past three weeks and others are cutting back on staff as they face a fall in the amount of money investors are ploughing in.

    But the death of digital currencies has been called before - so are we reading too much into this collapse? 

    Today, Tamsyn Parker is joined by Janine Grainger, chief executive of New Zealand cryptocurrency exchange Easy Crypto, to discuss what the future holds for digital currencies.

    How global events are impacting the NZX

    How global events are impacting the NZX

    Markets are hard to predict at the best of times, but it seems unlikely there will be a quick recovery for stocks that are having their worst year in at least three decades.

    Global shares have lost more than US$20 trillion in value this year and some say the worst is not yet over based on expectations for a recession in the United States and other powerhouse economies.

    In this episode of Continuous Disclosure, NZX general manager capital markets origination Sarah Minhinnick discusses the state of the markets with Duncan Bridgeman, and how macro-economic and geopolitical events are being felt in New Zealand.
